The showpiece of Beinn Eighe is the famous triple buttress. On the 3 broad faces of this crag are potentially the finest situated mountain crags anywhere. Well worth the demanding approach hike.

Single day experiences typically start at 9am and finish at 4:30pm. Please note that remote crags or long routes require the experience to start earlier and finish later than this. You may climb one long route or several shorter routes in a day, dependant on ability and time. You will be guided on the routes by an independently qualified, fully insured and competent Rock Climbing and Mountaineering Instructor. The instructor will select routes based on your experience, fitness and preferences and will aways try to give you several options. All climbing equipment required for the route and instruction on its use is included. Clients may use their own equipment following an inspection by the Instructor. Clients must ensure they bring appropriate clothing as listed on our kit list page. In case of dangerous weather conditions an alternative activity or a full refund will be offered.
